You Choose My Next Read and You Win the Book!


Fall book sale is over so it is that time again!  Here I will show you the books that I picked up at the sale.  In the comments – tell me which of these books you would love to read.  On Friday I will choose a winner using and that is the book I will read this weekend and mail it out next week to the winner.

It’s fun… and two of us get to read something good!  🙂

  1. I can’t enlarge those pictures. When I click them, I’m taken back to your post. So it’s difficult to read the spines, especially in the top photo because of too much glare. But that’s OK; I enter plenty of your other giveaways.

    1. I dont think there is a way for me to make them enlarge on wordpress. I just googled it and they suggested making a second page with them bigger so if you click on the pics now it should take you to another page to see them. If there is one you would like a title for just let me know 🙂

      1. Sheila, from what I’ve gathered since fooling around with my blogs now is it’s the size of the image itself (pixels) and also, you know how when you edit a picture it can post small, med., large? I think if you pick the larger size it allows for bigger when you click on it. Give it a shot when you can and see if that works.

        1. I will look at it later. I already made a page that has them bigger. It has been a long week and my “sort of mellow day” did not turn out at all like that – I left the house at 9:30 am and came home after 4. Then I went to right to cleaning up my kitchen as I have not been home at all and it needed love. Kitchen.. dishes, kitchen tables, laundry, vac, and shampoo carpets… not a lot left of me 🙂

  2. I just noticed in your twitter column that someone mentions FIVE DAYS LEFT. If that is one of the books, that’s the one that I’d pick, also. But I don’t think you would find that one at a used book sale.

    1. That one is from a previous post I put up this morning of what came in for me to read 🙂 If you hold down CTRL and hit the + sign on your key board it will make your site bigger that you are looking at. Perhaps that would help. When you are done, just hold down CTRL and the – sign and you can put it back to where you like to read it.

  3. Great haul! I’ve got boxes full of books from library sales, trips to Half-Price Books and thrift store shelves.

    Very difficult to choose but I’d go with Sister. That one was already on my TBR list. The runners-up would be :
    . Peyton Place — guilty pleasure read
    . U is for Undertow — I’ve only read one of Grafton’s books, T is for Trespass, which I enjoyed. This one sounds really good and it would give me a chance to sample reading via audiobook.

    Thanks for the fun giveaway 🙂

  4. I love these posts from your library sales…we not only get to see the books you bought, but get a chance to win one of them too!

    My choice would be Peyton Place by Grace Metalious.

  5. Mr Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, the most awesome book on books, with old books and geeky-googly stuff, and also elements of mystery. You really need to read it! and you will LOVE it

  6. Fahrenheit 451… If you haven’t read it yet, it’s a classic and well worth your time. It even has to do with books!

  7. You have a wonderful haul from the library sale! I am so glad to hear that all the hard work raised so much money! My little eyes spied The Doctor’s Wife~thanks so much for the opportunity!

  8. Great idea for a giveaway. I have all the books I’d want to read from the pictures, so I won’t enter to win anything. I just wanted to throw my two-cents in about what you should read next. I think it should be Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly, or Sue Grafton. I love all those books!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
